commission prioritizes road re-construction. but, the r-t-c says this winter has been severe enough to have them re-analyzing road conditions, which include south virginia street. crews will be out there later in the week, with the city of reno-- to see if reconstructing the road, can be fast tracked. ### and some lane closures to tell you about. n-dot is reducing lanes on state route 28 in incline village. the lanes will be done to one lane until 3:30 p-m friday. the rediction is needed to install street lights... sidewalk ramps and crossing signs to enhance pedestrian safety on the road. the 20-16 national championship air races are months away, but we got a preview of some of the new performances you can expect to see. the blue angels are returning for the first time in five years. also scheduled are the smoke-n-thunder jet show-- and lucas aerobatics. for the first time at the air races... a special demonstration, with large scale drones. it's all part of a plan, to

"11."
"yes!" with this scene. "62." "63." "yes!" this past saturday night at the restaurant's bar, read powerball numbers from one of the pooled tickets they purchased as a group. incredibly, they hit every number. "powerball 17." "yeah!" it was surreal. "that was the 20 minutes most important of my life. i feel... i feel great." valet drivers, bus boys, cooks in the kitchen -- including pedro maza -- all thought that they were going to share in the winnings and begin a new life. remember, saturday's jackpot was already a record 900-million dollars. they would each get away with a cool 22- million bucks. yes, of course, they already did the math -- after taxes. be honest. we all do it. in fact, after learning he had hit every number, one of the cooks tossed his apron and quit on the spot. "powerball 17." there was only one problem. okay, listen carefully. the workers read
previous wednesday's powerball jackpot, for which no winning numbers were sold. fast-forward a few days to when they bought their ticket for saturday night's drawing. they were on their phones, during the drawing, looking at an out-of-date website that listed an old set of winning numbers. it was left to bartender charles poveromo and host cladio campos to break the bad news. "...and i'm staring on his phone. i didn't want to believe that, but i just like, 'okay, that's the truth.' the guys are still jumping around over there. i'm like, 'oh, my god.'" "is this one of those guys who was jumping around?" "yes. yes." "i realized that something that was desperately, seriously "you guys had been steve harvey'd." "yes, we had." powerball drawing. the record-breaking
dollars... 930-million dollar lump sum value. this is a live look from gold ranch in verdi. there are many misconceptions when it comes to the powerball jackpot. one is that all the winners are from certain states. according to the associated press, its not true. experts say probabilities equal out over time, but in shorter periods, oddities can occur. another misconception is that the winnings are overstated. while the current jackpot is listed at $1.5 billion, a sole winner would only get that much if the person received 29 annual payments. if the winner chooses the cash prize, the amount is significantly less. finally, lots of people think the smaller the jackpot is, the better your odds are. this also isn't true.
for each ticket are 1 in 292.2-million regardless of the jackpot size or how many other people play. american navy soldiers held captive in iran after their boats entered iranian waters. the condition of the soldiers this morning plus... a re-cap of president obama's final state of the union address. but first... lindsey matherly will be back with your complete weather now forecast. announcer: "you're watching kolo 8 news now midday, with dave lawrence and weather with lindsey matherly this is kolo
